The room was well-maintained

Posted 17 Dec, 2014

I had been here for official purpose, with my colleague. The hotel location was easy to access, public transport facility was available and there were many shopping places nearby the hotel. The hotel was near to the beach. There was no problem in check-in and check-out. The room was well-maintained, spacious and had all kinds of amenities and there was beach view from the room. The food available in the hotel restaurant was good and many varieties of food were provided. There were no activities and games in the hotel. The hotel had a swimming pool and we enjoyed a lot in the pool. The hotel is recommendable to others.

Average resort, needs improvements

Posted 23 Jul, 2015

Rooms were truly not engaging as the floors were exceptionally messy. We had booked two rooms, weighed in at 12 yet got our second room at just about 5 at night - reason being they couldn't discover a room where the AC was working appropriately. To add to the wretchedness, the staff at the gathering was a long way from supportive or benevolent. At a duty of 4k, there was no complimentary breakfast. What shocked me was a 500 ml chilly drink container expense Rs. 87 in the eatery. The better perspectives were area, colossal complex and access to private shoreline. Swimming pool was an unequivocal in addition to and nourishment was great. The gathering fellow dependably looks as though he is in an uncertain bleak state of mind. He doesn't know how to grin. Swimming Pool: Not clean, they permit individuals to enter without swim ensembles. No flow on when being used. You would discover creepy crawlies swimming alongside you in the pool The resort can be better overseen as it has every one of the enhancements for a pleasant 1 night stay for family or lone wolves. A tad bit of additional exertion towards consumer loyalty can doubtlessly settle on this resort a perfect decision for spending plan voyagers.

Good ambience

Posted 13 Nov, 2011

This was a nice short trip and on the behest of my daughter, travelled to Mahabalipuram to stay at Golden Sun resort in gettting engaged in her frivolous attempts to jump on the sea waves, standing and dancing on the clean sand,running around the beach and at times sitting under the make shift straw roof with her mom just to gain some more energy. This was an exotic experience.

Awesome food & excellent place to visit

Posted 24 Feb, 2015

Mahabalipuram is an awesome place to visit. I visited Mahabalipuram in the month of October and it was not much sunny, the climate is good at that time. I believe that the best time to go to Mahabalipuram is October, November, December time because other times there will be too much heat. The stay at the resort was great. It has a very good swimming pool. The food is just awesome. I like the hospitality of the resort. The people at he resort were very cooperative. If we make any request then they will try to do that without any hesitation. If you are planning to visit Mahabalipuram then this resort is an excellent place to stay. The rooms were also good and the rates are also moderate. Overall, its a great place to visit. Don't miss the beauty of Shore temple at Mahabalipuram.

Spacious rooms and friendly staff

Posted 19 Sep, 2014

My stay in this resort was comfortable and experience was very good. It was located on the beach and located conveniently. It looks beautiful from inside and outside. I made booking through friend. Staff service was perfect. They were helpful and friendly. Services were on time. Rooms were neat and clean and spacious and well maintained with all basic amenities like TV, geyser, and refrigerator. Good quality of food was provided in veg and non-veg. I am satisfied with the food arrangements. Swimming pool was there. It is a recommendable hotel for other travellers. I travelled there in January along with my family for relaxation trip. No delay in check-in and check-out. Mahabalipuram is a good tourist place.
